Before unleashing Beach House 3, Ty Dolla $ign sails out with two new tracks.
First up, Ty taps Jeremih for a trip to “Dawsin’s Breek,” featuring production from Mike WiLL Made-It. “I got a brand new coupe,” he sings. “I got a brand new ‘Rarri / I got a brand new boo / I put my ex in park.”
Following the song’s premiere on Beats 1, Ty explained his aim. “I’m just trying to stay ahead,” he said. “I told y’all before. There’s no such thing as try. I am just taking it ahead. Gang shit.”
As the title suggests, the song was influenced in part by the late ’90s, early 2000s teen drama “Dawson’s Creek,” which starred James Van Der Beek and Katie Holmes. “It was inspired by ‘Dawson’s Creek,’ but I didn’t want to use their name,” he explained. “So we made up our own name.”
Second, Dolla drops “Message in a Bottle,” an acoustic track about drinking, texting exes, and living life like it’s a movie.
“Thanks to the message in a bottle,” he sings. “Let me get a swallow / Filling up my cup, section full of models / And we going up like it’s a Tuesday / Drinking ’till I’m woozy / Know I’m ’bout that action / Living like a movie.”
